Next Day Air is a 2009 action-comedy film starring Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), Mike Epps, and Donald Faison. The film is directed by Benny Boom and written by Blair Cobbs. The movie is set in Philadelphia and follows a group of bumbling criminals who accidentally receive a package containing ten kilograms of cocaine. The package was intended for a drug lord named Bodega, but it was mistakenly delivered to a low-level drug dealer named Leo who works for a local courier company.

Leo and his friend, Eric, hatch a plan to sell the drugs and make a quick fortune. Meanwhile, the real owners of the cocaine, including Bodega and his henchmen Shavoo and Buddy, are on the hunt to find their lost package. As the day unfolds, the lives of Leo and his friends, as well as Bodega and his crew, become increasingly intertwined.

The movie features a large ensemble cast of comedic actors, including Mike Epps as Leo's friend Eric, Donald Faison as the hapless courier employee, and Wood Harris as the delivery driver who unknowingly delivers the package to the wrong address. Also appearing in the film are Omari Hardwick, Darius McCrary, and Debbie Allen.

Despite its comedic tone, the movie also deals with serious themes such as the dangers of drug trafficking and the consequences of greed. The characters are all flawed in their own ways, and their choices throughout the film have far-reaching consequences.

One of the standout performances in the movie is that of Yasiin Bey, who plays the imposing drug lord Bodega. Bey brings a level of intensity and gravitas to the role, making Bodega one of the most memorable characters in the film.

The movie also features a soundtrack with hip-hop and R&B tracks from artists such as Mos Def, Redman, and Talib Kweli. The music helps to set the tone for the film and adds to the energy of the action sequences.

Overall, Next Day Air is an entertaining action-comedy that delivers plenty of laughs and thrills. While the plot may be familiar, the film's talented cast and energetic direction help to make it a standout in its genre.

Next Day Air is a 2009 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 46.
